Celebrating 10 Years Of The Wales Coast Path

Published on 2022-04-08 / By Hammy@Trefeddian

This year, we celebrate ten years since the Wales Coast Path opened.  

Wales is the only country in the world with a continuous waymarked path around its entire coast. The 870 miles of unbroken and unspoilt coastal walk make it one of the best long distance walks in Wales.  

Rugged, wild and rich in unexpected wildlife, flora and fauna, the coastal path offers the sound of waves, sea birds and grasses stirring in the wind.

The Trefeddian is ideally located for those wishing to explore the Llyn and Snowdonia Coast Section of the path - a 167 mile section starting in Porthmadog to the north and finishing in Cardigan to the south.  

This is one of the most varied sections of the trail, taking you through Portmeirion village, across the vast sandy beach in the shadow of Harlech Castle and meandering down the Mawddach estuary, rich with waders and wildlife. A detour inland above Pennal and Machynlleth affords amazing views across the Dyfi estuary and beyond.  

Landscapes change as you head towards the southern section of the trail to Aberystwyth and Cardigan, dipping in and out of wooded ravines, high cliff tops and pretty coastal settlements.

The Trefeddian is perfectly positioned near the Cambrian Coast Line. Ideal for those wishing to do the path in shorter sections without the burden of heavy rucksacks and camping. Part of the Walkers Welcome scheme, we are able to provide everything you need to make your adventure more comfortable;  

  • Early breakfast

  • Water refills

  • Drying room
